    Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect! Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree.

    This was the first time I had listened to a book written by Sophie Kinsella. I downloaded the book looking for a listen that was Bridget Jones like. I was not dissapointed. This book is fun and very easy to listen to. The plot has many twists and turns which make it unpredictable. It was a very enjoyable listen.

    Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

    After reading "14" I could not wait to get my hands on another book by Peter Clines. Ex-Heroes was not what I was expecting. The book was very boring. In fact I could not get past the first two hours. It does not have the same mystery and intrigue as "14". I will not finish it.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    14 hooked me in instantly. I mean this book is "crazy, good"! If you go into listening with no idea what this book is about it will keep you guessing the whole time. The narration is amazing and the story is powerful. Loved it!

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    Would you listen to Tricked again? Why?

    Yes, the story is exciting and hilarious. Luke Daniels is a phenomenal narrator!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is Oberon. Seriously, how often do you get to know the thoughts of an irish wolfhound!


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to all of the Iron Druid books. Luke Daniels is by far my favorite narrator. He has unique voices for each character. The story is amazing on its own, but with a voice like Luke's it makes it even more amazing!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I often laughed out loud while listening to this book. I listen to audible.com books while I run or at bedtime. My husband often looked at me like I was delusional when I was listening. However, I have now convinced him to listen to the series.


    Any additional comments?

    LOVE the Iron Druid Chronicles! Can't wait for Trapped and Hunted. If you enjoy action, adventure, and fantasy, with a little bit of mystic thrown in you will love this series.
